regards, nancy pelosi". thank you very much. [applause] >> so mayor lee, senator leno, state assembly member and leaders and ladies and gentlemen. it's a real honor for me to celebrate with you today the start of the italian culture in the united states. nancy pelosi was with our foreign minister in washington dc, but san francisco is the first major city after washington dc that follows suit, that follows washington dc, so again a little like the giants that want to be number one. today is december, 12, 2012 which is 12-12-12. kind of scary. i would like to quote rem. "it's the end of the world as we know it but we're just fine". we are just fine because we're beginning really 12 months that will be exciting and fun for all of us. as you all have mentioned italians have made a lasting contributions in building this city, and in making what it is, the city that is international, innovative and open. it's difficult to name names but let me mention angela rosy and judge misconnie and in city hall and in the hearts and minds of san franciscans. let me mention ap geny and found an

. republicans are calling it a plan, democratic leader nancy pelosi call it is a gimmick. it sounds more like -- i mean, my read initially was this is more like political posturing rather than a serious deal. what are you hearing down there? >> well, it certainly is something that's meant to try and force the senate to act. you know, the senate has not passed a suggest in over 1,300 days and that's a popular rallying cry of the house gop. but what came out of this retreat was the idea instilled in members that it's probably not beneficial with the republican brand so damaged nationally to have a real standoff over the debt limit. this is a way they're trying to get passed that, a three-month extension. they're not demanding any cuts. all they're demanding is for the senate to have a budget by april 15th. in theory it sounds something less shall we say -- it's less trying to instill anger in democrats, but you saw when harry reid said he was reassured they're moving away from their all-or-nothing proposition. but overall what this is trying to do is give the house the ability to pass an extens

that it would have been a more telling benefit for the party if it had been nancy pelosi re-emerging as the speaker of the house and if democrat governors had won in the numbers that they needed to win in as well as legislative bodies being dominated by democrats. i think the cult of the personality had a lot more to do with the end results this time around. in addition thereto, the defective candidacy of the republican nominee. after all, he was a legitimate burden for that party. >> the republicans were the best friend of the democrats because of 2345 whole primary process. those debates i think had a collective effect that was all to the benefit of president obama in the end. >> you had one rational guy, jon huntsman, cam out, and they all pounded on him. >> who didn't act as rationally as he is. remember the old ten for one, he was one of the hands that went into the air. >> he tried a little bit until south carolina. it wasn't just the debate. the pathologies of the debate played out through the campaign. so you had senate seats in missouri and indiana that fell to the

house minority leader nancy pelosi saying: >> so the republicans are taking the debt ceiling debate moving it off a few months perhaps take place in april or may so they can focus on the automatic spending cuts set to hit the budget at the end of february those are known as sequester and also government discretionary spending authority that runs out in march. plenty of budget fights and it looks like we will be having them just about every couple of months all the way through the spring. david: as long as you are in williams burg virginia what do you care? it is a lovely place to be right now this time of year. rich: yes and the wind has died down and the snow is melting. it's a nice place. david: thanks rich. liz: we will find out what a representative thinks about the debt ceiling bill that will hit the floor next week and find out why she's calling for congress to get rid of the debt ceiling all together. david: also, all the fighting in d.c. could create a big opportunity for you the investor. find out exactly how you can trade the debt ceiling a little later this hour. it will

. just asking myself that question. >> think of the cooperative relationship obama and nancy pelosi had and how crucial to getting all that stuff through the first two years. >> still need that apparatus. >> unnecessary -- >> i won't call it a favorite inaugural moment. i'm going to call it a cautionary tale. the longest address ever was william harris harrison's inaugural address in 1841. it was nearly two hours. think about that. two hours. that you're standing out there in the cold. watching this old time fighter just sort of ramble on and on and on. cautionary tale is he didn't wear a coat and he got a cold and literally -- 30 days later, died of pneumonia. keep it brief, fellows. keep it brief. >> wait. hasn't that whole cold -- actually being in the cold leading to illness thing been debunked? >> not in process of this. >> sorry. >> not for this segment. >> cold water on your -- >> just wondering. >> in the 1840s they thought that not wearing a coat got you a cold. >> all right. >> but i'll still make sure that my daughter wears a coat. >> that's the story. >> speaking of children

him. de facto nancy pelosi is the speaker of the house rns and steny huher is the majority leader. >> you say that because. >> because we've had two major legislative initiatives in this important ones one to avoid the fiscal cliff and plummeting off. and left to their own votes the republicans rejected it. it was passed only because the democrats. and then after that we had the vote on hurricane sandy. and the people of new york and new jersey and new england who were devastated by it to get the same kind of treatment that the people who suffered from cat in-- katrina did. left to republican votes and john boehner's best efforts have failed in the house of representatives. democrats passed it. both cases democrats were the key. >> i thinks that-- these are exceptional cases. in the years ahead the republicans discover they can't govern controlling the house. the democrats are going to discover they can't get much done unless they control the house. and i think in general the general pattern is they both lost a lot of -- >> here we are the friday before the secretary inauguration,

they all attended, they would have joined not only nancy prksz pelosi and harry reid but tommy lee jones. as tip o'neil said, love the sinner, hate the sin. we need to get back to a time when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neil. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration 2013. here's hoping that it sill it spills over to the next four years. both sides become more social, more civil and, hence, more productive. thanks for being with us. politics nation with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, michael. and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, i'll second that. we're just three days away from history. president obama will be sworn in for the second time on the steps of the capital. and he looks pretty happy about it. take a look at his official second term portrait released today. that's a man who won a decisive election. who's proud of his accomplishment. yes, he's older than the man who appeared in that 2009 picture. but with his new grey hairs comes real progress. he inherited a country on the verge of economic collapse. and he responded by

. pretty negative response from nancy pelosi, the democratic leader in the house. this pros poll sas, she says, does not relieve the uncertainty faced by the middle class. this is a gimmick unworthy of the challenges we face and the national debate we should be having. the message for the american people is clear, no gauges, no default. is there a lack of coordination in the response between pelosi and the white house? >> look, i think both sides are true. it's positive that the republicans and the congress are backing off of that threat. it's also true that we can't go in three-month increments having a debate about whether we're going to pay our bills and whether we're going to jeopardize the full faith and credit of the united states of america. we need to work this through, find a long-term solution for this and bring some certainty to the economy. >> i'm not sure i'd say it's an entirely positive statement from the white house saying that, gee, republicans need to stop holding a gun to americans' head. that's true. but of course that's not what is happening. we've spent the money and

day negotiating and debating and putting their facts together. the final decision between nancy pelosi and the head of the sun -- of the senate when they finally came out with exactly what the bill would be -- it was done behind closed doors. the putting together of the bills, people putting in their amendments, was actually done on cspan every day and i watched that. secondly, with respect to these people calling about taking away guns. there is nothing about taking away people's guns. if they go through a background check, they don't need to have a gun. the second amendment does not say that they can have any kind of amendment of they want. guest: let me answer your question about the meeting is being televised you are correct that the debate about the bill in congress was, to some extent, televised through the normal proceedings that cspan covers. obama was referring to the early negotiations which is what he had been critical of hillary clinton for -- the part where deals would be cut with the pharmaceutical industries and hospital industry and those negotiations were all behind cl
